George Duke (1946-2013) was an American musician, known as a keyboard pioneer, composer, singer, and producer in Jazz and R&B. He recorded A Brazilian Love Affair (1980) in Rio with great singers as Flora Purim, Milton Nascimento and Airto Moreira (the latter of which Touching You, Touching Me is available on vinyl as MOVLP1373).

Although not the return to instrumental Jazz some hoped it would be, this heartfelt effort does contain its share of Jazz-influenced material.  From a Jazz standpoint, the most noteworthy songs include "Cravo e Canela", "the charming Brazilian Sugar", "Love Reborn", and "Up from the Sea It Arose and Ate Rio in One Swift Bite."

The album is clearly a labour of love from start to finish.
